Security – Latimer Park

KETTERING TOWN FC’S HISTORY AT LATIMER PARK

The Club first came to this our present site in 2013 which is being shared with United Counties League Division One outfit, Burton Park Wanderers FC.

A 789 crowd saw the first league game on Tuesday 20 August, when Barton Rovers beat The Poppies 0-3 in the Southern League Division One Central.

Within two years the ground has grown to a main stand on Polwell Lane seating 500, plus another stand on the same side and covered accommodation behind The Morrison and Station Road Ends.

On Monday 5 May, 2,331 turned up to see the first final fixture, a 2-3 defeat against Slough Town in the 2013/14 Southern League Division One Central Play-Off Final.

Saturday 18 April saw 1,003 attend Latimer Park to witness The Poppies lift the Southern League Division One Central shield after a 2-1 success over Bedworth United.

SECURITY MESSAGE

We would respectfully ask that supporters arrive in good time ahead of kick off to guarantee that there is little or no delay in entering the stadium.

STANDING

The Club would like to reiterate its policy with regards to standing during football matches played at Latimer Park and ask for the fans to co-operate with the Stewards on matchdays.

We naturally recognise that the problem does not exist throughout the Stadium, but where and when it does occur, it affects a number of fans who have been unable to view the pitch on occasions.

Therefore, we would ask you to consider the fans behind you, the elderly or the young and those who cannot stand for prolonged periods of time.

We are aware that football can be a passionate and emotive game.

Your support of the team has been invaluable over recent years and therefore.

Please listen to what the Stewards say allowing everyone to enjoy the match in the unique atmosphere here at Latimer Park, created by Poppies fans.

POPPIES AGAINST DISCRIMINATION

We do not tolerate discrimination of any sort at the Club, on the pitch or in the stands. If you experience any form of discrimination, help us to eliminate it from football by reporting it at info@ketteringtownfc.com – we will treat your correspondence in strictest confidence.

Your co-operation in helping to make Latimer Park a safe and enjoyable environment for everyone is greatly appreciated.

EVACUATION PROCEDURE

In the event of an emergency at Kettering Town Football Club, spectators should remain in their positions and listen carefully to the loud speaker announcements that will be made.

The announcements may direct spectators in a specified area of the ground to evacuation points which may be exit gates or emergency exits leading on to the pitch.

In such cases, the information will not appertain to your section of the stadium.

Stewards, and officials will direct spectators to the relevant points.

If spectators are requested to vacate a specified area, they are asked to do so calmly and quickly to assist with a safe evacuation.

All supporters should then make their way towards the Morrison End side of the stadium using avoiding the Clubhouse End and the front of the stadium.
